In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective beautifying treatment with today’s Groupon from Melanie Graybill at Special Effects in Marion. Choose from the following options:
- For $49, you get 1 inch-loss body wrap (a $100 value).
- For $145, you get 3 inch-loss body wraps (a $300 value).
- For $475, you get 10 inch-loss body wraps (a $1,000 value).<p>
At the start of 60-minute inch-loss sessions, Melanie Graybill swaddles bodies with a specially designed wrap aimed at boosting metabolic rates and diminishing the appearance of cellulite. Graybill boasts 14 years of body-wrapping experience, making her almost as much of an expert as a 15-year-old ancient Egyptian. Once fully bundled, clients relax for 45 minutes while their bodies zap calories—possibly burning as many as 1,200–1,500 calories, equivalent to four hours of walking or two minutes of mountain-punching. The wrap hugs may also help reduce chronic pain and jumpstart circulation and require zero downtime.
Special Effects’ warmly hued décor puts minds at ease more quickly than sudoku solutions set to lullabies. While waiting for treatment, bask in the glow of natural light as it pours through front-paneled windows or peruse some of the classic artwork adorning the spa’s walls.
